Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1354) algorithm field in digest auth should not be quoted
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 11:17:16 GMT
Mark Thornton created HTTPCLIENT-1354:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: algorithm field in digest auth should not be quoted
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1354
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1354
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient
    Affects Versions: 4.2.5
            Reporter: Mark Thornton


The algorithm field in digest authentication must not be quoted. The current version of tomcat
shipped with Ubuntu 13.04 insists on this (though future versions of tomcat are more relaxed).

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=54060

see comment 12.

Httpclient will thus fail to authenticate against tomcat 7.0.33 to 7.0.35, but should work
against 7.0.36 and later.  Note that the fix in tomcat 7.0.36 is to accommodate clients that
are not conforming to the specification.
